I think this street gang is probably a little more human than some of the other street gangs I hear about!!

I would hope to be in my car with the windows securely rolled up, and not on my bicycle, if I came across this ominous-looking group of thugs!!

That's no ordinary street gang... That's the RCMP!
It's the bears forming a roadblock.

If its right next to a salmon river, it might not be so bad. If it's right next to the town dump, it could be trouble.

<stupid question>
Are there brown bears or grizzlies?
I once found a "training" online on hwo to tell them appart. Something with round ears and bumps. But I forgot what feature belonged to what bear.

But this is a great picture

to answer your question on Brown or Grizzly, they are one and the same, Brown bears are just Grizzlies found in coastal regions, where as Grizzlies are more towards the interior. And then Black Bears are obviously Red.

80%...some of those questions are tricky. the ones i got wrong, im still not sure of. they shouldve thrown some print ID questions in there.

edit--finally got 100%, took me quite a few tries...is it just me, or do some of those pictures look alot like gizzlies when the correct answer is black??
